We purchased this car new and could not be happier. The size is great, and the style is the best out there. Freeway miles for a V6 23-24mpg is awesome, and even city around 19-20mpg is great. Have not had to bring it in for anything small, but its a good feeling that the engine and powertrain are covered for as long as we own the car, which I have a feeling will be a very long time. Dodge built a great vehicle, that I think will be a favorite for a long time. So happy with this car, that when I go to trade my truck in this spring, we are going to buy a Dodge Ram, can't wait!!!!!
From accelerating, to steering(get the 19 inch rims, get an upgrade on steering and suspension) the style and quality is great. Safety features that are standard you pay extra for any Toyota or Honda!!!
They shoudl think about doing a Hybrid with this vehicle, nothing elese I would fix..
I have had my Dodge Journey for a Year and love the car. It had been raining all day on Sunday and when my husband and I went to take friends out to dinner, the passengar side in the front was flooded with water. You could see where it looked like it ran down the door. Windows and door where shut tight and the overhead console when I turned the corner, had water running out as well. Have an appointment on Thursday. Hopefully, the car will not start to smell and they fix the problem. Will see how it turns out. Also, the car could get a little better gas mileage. It's almost like to much car for the size engine.
I like the bluetooth accessories, the leather interior and the 3 rows of seats.
I think that if the engine were a small 8, you might get a little better gas mileage since it would not be such a strain on the engine. I think that the 6 is not big enough for the amount of car.
I had my car for a year and started having issues with it. It gets terrible gas milage. Had to have new break and rotors, new water pump, now the heater is being fixed. Not to mention all the "little" issues. Worste car I have ever purchased. The gas milage is terrible. Nothing like the sticker in the window when I bought it. I would not recommend this car to anyone.
I didn't experience any problems until almost one year after I purchased it. The car would just shut off at times while at stoplight, I took it to the dealer each time this happened and after the third attempt they were able to finally correct the problem. Next my brakes and rotors needed to be replaced, I couldn't beleive a car with such low mileage would need brakes let alone rotors replaced! Now the engine light comes on while I'm driving, and starts flashing and starts riding really rough as if going to stall out. I pull over restart the car and it drives fine again. Not to mention the interior issues, water stains on seats and torn insulation that frames doors. Poorly made car!
I was impressed by the design and size of the vehicle. Like the storage space and compartments.
Better quality seat fabric to resist water stains. Install better brake pads to prevent premature wear and tear. Have better electrical components and engine to prevent mishaps such as car shutting off and engine light coming on. should not have these kind of problems in a new car!!!
I got my Journey in July 2009 and absolutely loved it until winter came. This car does not do well in snow or ice. I have gotten stuck 3 times this winter in just a light dusting of snow because of the front wheel drive traction control. We were parked on a small incline and it was a little slick and the wheels just spun. My husband had to get out and push until we got come traction. Also I was going through an S-curve and the road was again lightly dusted with snow and the back end started to swing around on me. I turned the wheel back the other way and it started coming back around the opposite direction until I came to the stop sign where the snow plow had salted the road.
This car has all kinds of neat cubby holes and storage places. We got the stain resistant cloth seats and any little stain wipes clean with a damp rag. The car is very functional for a busy family. We also got the third row seating but is is absolutley no leg room.
Fix that traction control thing! This car needs to plow through snow and ice like the old Dodge Omni. Also the screen that shows all the radio stations/sattelite radio is very distracting and in the wrong place. It should be up higher and the controls down lower where you can reach them.
